An important part of the Narconon Fresh Start program is taking personal responsibility for the things you have done in the past and making amends when needed. Clients identify areas in their life where they were unethical and negligent of others. Through addressing these specific incidents (writing them down, thinking about them and talking about them) the program participant is able to work through their feelings and move past the guilt that burdens them. Freeing themselves of these negative feelings and emotions allows the client to focus on their future. This is because they have put those past experiences to rest and done their best to do right by those they may have hurt or harmed along the way. For the client it feels like they are given the chance to start anew, a clean slate if you will to begin living the new life they are preparing for while in treatment.
I feel much better after my class and writing my letters. Getting all my feelings and emotions out really lifted a load off of me and makes me feel strong. I am happy to be moving on with my program.
I feel a lot better after finally writing down all the guilt and shame I have been carrying around for all these years. I have a great sense of relief after writing a letter to my boyfriend.
